Alaska legislature returns with COVID-19 precautions, but no clear enforcement for lawmakers

There are more than 130 legislators and staff in Juneau for the legislative session. The legislature is taking steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. For instance, the Capitol building is closed to the public. And the legislature has a $1.5 million contract with a company to test and screen everyone who is allowed in the building. But, there is still a risk to having so many people working out of the same building in downtown Juneau. KTOO’s Rashah McChesney has this story.
